Hey lovelies. I think I have never quite got over my love for the Harpers Bazaar Birchbox. The August box was good, but not as good as the Harper's Bazaar one, so I was keen to see what the October Birchbox 'Work It' with CoppaFeel could offer. With October being breast cancer awareness month, they have partnered up with CoppaFeel to give all the info needed, and to spot early signs and symptoms. Plus all month Birchbox are asking you to 'coppafeel' - share your picture on Twitter with the message 'I COPPED A FEEL #CoppaBirchbox @CoppaFeelPeople @BirchboxUK' and they will donate £1 to CoppaFeel!
This month the selection of products should help you quite literally 'work it' through the 9 to 5 and beyond...
KMS California Free Shape Hot Flex Creme | A sweet-scented styling creme to smooth curls, waves and/or frizz. added heat protection and anti–breakage technology. Anything to calm my autumnal frizz is a welcomed addition to me, and on a first use it seems like a good light weigh creme.
Shaveworks The Cool Fix | A cooling gel lotion that treats ingrown hairs, razor bumps and redness after hair removal. I am a shaving, not a waxing, girl so I am keen to see how this works. Although my shaving routine often falls to hair conditioner (legs that is...) it will be nice to add a 'proper' shaving product into my routine.
Balance Me Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm | A natural, nourishing cleanser with exfoliating oatmeal powder. Perfect for my super dry skin which is forever resisting any sort of exfoliation. Plus Balance Me are fast becoming one of my favourite skincare brands.
Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum | A radiance enhancing, anti-ageing serum. By Cindy Crawford so need I say more? Very clever marketing here, but if I can look like one tenth of her, I'm there.
Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm | A full size nourishing lip balm packed with shea butter & a hint of a sheer vibrant pink shade and surprisingly it’s quite pigmented. This has two of my favourite things in one tube, pinkness and shea butter. I'm sold.
Lifestyle Extra - Lipstick Pen | Finally, I will now have a pen in my handbag.
Overall, I think this is one of the better Birchboxs and definitely beats the August box. For all of £10 when you subscribe to Birchbox, for the value of over £35, I think that is a pretty good deal. Even better, with this code - BBXMASCARA5 you'll get £5 off your first box. And even better if I end up looking like Cindy Crawford.
What do you think of the October Birchbox?
